positions in the government going around and questioning climate change. this is what the environment secretary says -- people get very emotional about it. people should just accept the climate has been changing for centuries. the energy minister went on about climate change. you are not going to draw me on that. i haven't had time to get into the climate change debate. [laughter] he is the energy minister, mr. speaker. will the prime minister clarify, is he happy that there are climate change deniers in his government? >> this is obviously the new approach to prime minister's questions. you come in and praise the prime minister for his commitment to climate change. i like the new style. i think this is much more refreshing. this government has a solid track record of cutting carbon and investing in nuclear. the biggest renewable energy program we have seen in this country, for the first time in a long time we are on track to the renewable target. perhaps he would like to get up again and congratulate me on the record on the energy environment. >> the whole country will have heard the
see in the world bank called the enabling environment that is a socially the trust of the businesses in the rule of law. and there's not a shortage of money. they are regional investors who would like to put money into the question is can they trust the rules of the game to do that and that govern in particular. minerals are going to be a magic bullet, but the oil and gas resources that have been discovered recently are quite immense and it isn't inconceivable that in ten to 15 years we underwrite the cost of sustaining stability and services within the country. in conclusion let's move from the quick fix is in a magic bullet and understanding the peace and stability and governance would be at the peace of stability and it is the many small wins rather than the deal that would be liver on that for the afghans at the question is can a politics deliver what the afghans believe in more than 90% of the leaving the law and order that future to realize it. >> thank you. david? >> thank you very much, andrew. it's a great pleasure to be here and i will join you and others in thinking asap i
of the white house, marking what could be the largest youth sit in on the environment in a generation. >> we are here to march to the white house and form one of the largest accessible disobedience for climate ever. hundreds of young people all came here from all over the country, 42 states, to show president obama the keystone xl is not ok and not in our national interest. than 80nts for more colleges rallied at georgetown university and then marched to the white house were some unfurled a black tarp and laid on the sidewalk to create a human oil spill. hundreds locked themselves to the white house fence before being arrested. president obama is expected to make a decision on whether to approve the keystone xl pipeline in the coming months. more on the protest and the pipeline later in the broadcast. the venezuelan president is facing a new round of protests against his government. despite the carnival holiday, thousands of opposition protesters marched and then clashed with police sunday in the capital caracas. at least 70 people have died in bed as well as worst unrest for a decade. -- at
environment we heard about how a lot of the coverage around elections wasn't particularly polarized. there are undoubtedly concerns around the future of where this is going to be. fragile my work is on states in general. fragile states tend to be fractured state. and we are seeing an increase in the fragmented and fractured media in afghanistan and the most fractured part of that getting quiteably significant injections of funding at the moment. if the last length -- it is the that isng for a state trying to chart its own national identity -- it is not necessarily a useful way of going. but as the media -- but the media is becoming ever more fractured and fragile. >> how solid do you think is the support that you expect to see in terms ofection governmental support for the concept of a free media? i know there was discussion recently about freedom of the press in afghanistan. >> again, when you compare it to other countries, afghanistan has had a remarkable -- has managed to create a remarkable space of freedom of media. this is because -- we should give credit to president karzai .
dispute settlement procedures and rules and enforcement of new obligations upon environment and labor. now, let me turn very quickly to the ttip negotiations. i have a little lesson that i can say on this because they are at an earlier stage of negotiations. though they are also important because the transatlantic economic relationship is our most significant commercial relationship. it's not our most significant trade partnership. the tpp actually is more valuable in that front, but we are talking about over a trillion dollars of two-way trade in goods and services between the united states and the european union, and over $4 trillion in foreign direct investment in each other's market. so it is a huge, huge adventure. the ttip negotiators seek to eliminate tariffs and substantial reduce nontariff barriers in trade and investment. that's a traditional part of the agenda. but as miriam noted, there's also ambitious goals with regard to coordinating or harmonizing regulatory policies affecting trade in goods and services. and that's what the biggest payoff could come very hard to estimate t
in a safe environment. more than a change in government, we want a true change in the country. we don't want to live in other countries, we want to change venezuela. >> tens of thousands of opposition supporters rallied across the capital in a large display of unrest. sunday's march through the capital was overwhelmingly peaceful. later hundreds engaged in standoffs with the police. it did not reach levels of violence seen at other protests. >> president nicolas maduro cracked down hard at the protest. there has been fatalities and dozens injured and arrested. the governments have been holding peace talks. the opposition and many gaoled. >> this is the annual carnival weekend. under different circumstances most of the people protesting will be sitting on the beach. they can't celebrate when many have been killed or taken prisoner. >> nicolas maduro gave people two extra days off for carnival. so far it has not worked. people have brought the beach to the protest. . >> translation: the people are calling for deep political change and it doesn't get that venezuela woke up. it's demanding human
this plan by hager does not accurately reflect the security environment. roy blunt, it has the potential to harm america's readiness. we're not likely to see the knock-down, drag-out fight. remember the sequester was supposed to be the stick that would force republicans and some democrats to negotiate a grand bargain. but as we saw, many republicans looked over the edge of the cliff and said, you know what, sequester not so bad. in fact, some conservatives support the sequester, for imposing cuts that congress wouldn't have had the stomach to put in place otherwise, and for republicans, some conservatives who are putting fiscal responsibility near the top of their priority list, this may be a question of picking your poison. now, according to south carolina governor nikki haley, president obama delivered that message pretty bluntly when he spoke to republican governors at the chamber of commerce -- she was at the chamber of commerce, but this is what he said, according to her, when they met at the white house. >> the tone completely changed when we started talking about the national guar

such as entities committed to protecting and preserving our nation's environment natural resources or the communities that could be directly impacted by such activities. to be clear, i strongly support the rights of industry to have an opportunity to provide comments on proposed rules. it fosters more informed quality rulemaking and benefits both business and broader society. indeed, that's why our current administrative procedures mandate that a public comment process be conducted to allow any individual or corporation to participate and provide input and feedback in an equal, fair and open process. that's current law. the amendment that congresswoman duckworth and i are proposing today would simply ensure that all participants in the rulemaking process be provided equal consultation rights with agencies. for example, as the ranking member, mr. cummings, noted earlier, if the u.s. department of agriculture were to have a rule in an effort to protect the health of everyday americans, our amendment would ensure that not only the agribusinesses but also food safety experts, children'
commitments to sustain that. it is the question of what the ifc and the world bank called enabling environment. there's not a shortage of money. they are enormously wealthy. they are regional investors. they would like to put money in, but can they trust in the rules of the game and the rules of law to do that. minerals are not going to be a magic bullet, but oil and gas resources that are being discovered recently are quite immense. inis not inconceivable that 10-15 years, they can more than underwrite the cost of sustaining said -- sustaining stability. in conclusion, let's move from thinking of quick fixes and magic bullets to understanding that peace and stability and governance were at the heart of peace and stability. it is the many small wins that will deliver this for afghans. the question is can the politics deliver something that the middle 90% of afghans who order and law and want that feature -- and want that future can realize it. you very much, andrew. it is a great pleasure to be here. i want to join you and others in thanking u.s. ip and others in sponsoring this. it is humblin
it is a question of what the ifc in the world bank called the enabling environment essentially the trust of businesses and there's not a shortage of money. there are enormously wealthy afghans in regional investors who would like to put money in but the question is can they trust in the rule of law to do that? the rules that govern the extract is section particularly. there will not be a magic bullet that the oil and gas resources being discovered recently are quite immense and it's not inconceivable that in 10 to 15 years they can more than underwrite the cost of sustaining stability and services within the country. so in conclusion i think let's move from looking for quick fixes and magic olefson understanding peace and stability and governance will be a key part of the stability and rather than a victory or deal that will deliver for afghans and the question can the politics deliver that 90% of afghans who believe and law and order and what that future can realize. >> david. >> thank you very much and it's a great pleasure to be here. i join you and others in thanking usip, voa and us
workers and especially in this high-growth environment, where are you going to get people to work to clean our hotel rooms or do our landscaping? and we don't need to put these employers in a position of hiring undocumented and illegal workers. >> sink is running in a special election for the seat of the late bill young. her campaign says that clip misrepresents the candidate's position on immigration. we'll have a full report on that race tomorrow. >>> so is president obama bailing on afghanistan at the cost of national security? what is the policy? we'll ask the fox all-stars in just a minute. test test. test test. the day we rescued riley was a truly amazing day. he was a matted mess in a small cage. so that was our first task, was getting him to wellness. without angie's list, i don't know if we could have found all the services we needed for our riley. from contractors and doctors to dog sitters and landscapers, you can find it all on angie's list. we found riley at the shelter, and found everything he needed at angie's list. join today at angieslist.com like carpools... polly wants t
sit-in on the environment in a generation. consumer advocates at the environmental working group are warning that a chemical used to make yoga mats and flip flops can now be found in more than 500 food items. the chemical azodicarbonamide is often used in bread, croutons, pre-made sandwiches and snacks made by brands including pillsbury, nature's own, sara lee, kroger and little debbie. the restaurant chain subway recently announced it was phasing out the use of the chemical after an online campaign. the chemical is not approved for food use in australia and europe. and fernando gonzalez, one of the members of the cuban five has been released after mother 15 years behind bars. he was transferred thursday to an immigration prison pending deportation back to cuba. havana,er spoke in praising the release of her son. >> for the cuban people that have been fighting for a long time for this return, it is also a victory. convicted, and later of espionage. they say they were not spying by trying to monitor violent right-wing exile groups. three others remain in prison. and those are some
to keep it that way. driven to preserve the environment, csx moves a ton of freight nearly 450 miles on one gallon of fuel. what a day. can't wait til tomorrow. >>> america's longest war may be coming to an end sooner than expected. the president ord ed the pentagon to draw up plans for a complete withdrawal from afghanistan by the end of the year. joining me now, jack jacobs. can i ask you this. is this posturing or does the u.s. really want to do this? >> i think we really want to do it but we shouldn't discount the fact that our politicians have a policy to think before they think, drawing lines in the sand we never tend to reinforce. so some of this is posturing but by the end of the day if we can't reach an arrangement with karzai, we're leaving. we are going to do that. we have areas surrounding afghanistan we can do some operations but i think the intention is to get out. >> a reporter wrote yesterday that u.s. officials told her that al qaeda is planning a comeback in afghanistan. some of that is politically motivated. how concerned are you that that is a reality. >> i think
environment confrontation between security forces and anti-government protesters. they're demanding the release of fellow students detained during two weeks of unrest. more marchs have been called for sunday. at least 18 people have been killed so far. and opposition leader has boycott peace talks called for by president nicolÁs maduro. he believes the crisis will get worse. >> i believe we need to create the conditions to create change. it requires being strong in the face of the government who has had problems of legitimacy from the start. even beyond those problems it has had problems in governing. you have economic problems that are going to start a political crisis. the political crisis in the face of the government that, let's say, covers its eyes that does not want to face problems or resolve problems. it will reach such propulsion that they will tell maduro that you must either fix the problem or go. >> roadblocks in several venezuelan cities. they have been central in the scene of fierce battles between protesters and security forces. we travel to valencia where protesters
of the new media environment. the consumer is a much more in control. you just have to wait to be spoonfed when of the major networks wanted to give you. now there's this rich cornucopia, and your biggest challenge is to sit through the vast array of information available to you. it is there if you want to find it very -- it. the: we're talking about president and his 90 minute conversation with vladimir putin. i think vladimir putin views barack obama? guest: how shall i put this? i think he holds him and minimal high regard. warning sign that he was start taking him lightly was in september 2009. it was september 17. on that fateful day, barack obama made a unilateral decision, without insulting his allies that he was going to and the program that had been developed under the previous administration to build missile defense systems in the czech republic and poland, two of our strongest allies. the czech and polish government had really gone out on a limb and sacrificed a lot of credibility and prestige. their product -- they thought tremendous little battles to get these bases approved c
of the operating environment, the cultural differences and, of course, the native language capability. we do not believe the special operations variant of the chin yearbook would have fared any differently than extortion 17 on that night. there is no techniadvantage inherent in the special operations model that would have protected it from the rocket that downed the aircraft. we recognize, however, that these helicopters are vulnerable to regrenades. although there's currently no proven system to counter that particular weapon and that particular enemy tactic in the two and a half years since this tragic loss, we have fielded 24 different survivability and safety equipment upgrades on over 2,000 of our military aircraft. with the chinook ch-47 receiving as many as four of these individual up grades, and we continue our efforts, with the support of congress, to fund the research and development to develop the countermeasures that we would need to protect against the rpg. but i have to say no chances in technology or any change in the way we operate will bring back our fallen heros or's the pa
an environment of transparency, contributing to rising confidence in the electoral process. the successful voter registration drive begun during the summer of 2013 in which new voters registered by the millions, largely without incident, also demonstrates greater iec capacity. although there is, although there is thus room for optimism in the iec's performance, overt political pressure could of course still derail this progress. fortunately political entities have so far largely refrained from interfering in the electoral preparations and indeed afghan officials have even been disciplined for engaging in political activity. the independent electoral complaints commission is a relatively new institution. permanently established through the passage of a new electoral law. the ecc successfully adjudicated complaints stemming from candidate registrations in october but has since made slower progress. the slow pace of appointing provincial officers delayed the establishment of provincial electoral complaint commission offices and memorandum of understanding between the i.e. c and ecc to colocate in p
and world bank call enabling environment. that is essentially the trust of businesses in the rule of law. it is not a shortage of money. there are enormously wealthy afghans and regional investors would like to put money but the question is can they trust in the rules of the game and world of law to do that. what would be the rules that governor enthe sector in particular. minerals will not be the magic bullet but oil and gas resources discovered recently have been quite immense. it is not inconceivable in 10 to 15 years this can more than underwrite the cost of the sustaining services within the country. so in conclusion i think let's move from looking for the quick fixes and magic bullets understanding that peace and stability, governance will be at the heart of peace and is it stability and small wins will win for the after bans and the question, can the politics deliver something that the 90% of afghans who believe in more than 90% believe in law and order and want that future can realize it. >> thank you. david. >> thank you very much andrew. it is a quite a pleasure to be here. i w
his opposition to obamacare. >> you know what, in a sane environment do when they have problems with a good objective in they fix the problems. the other choice is to just pout if you're not in the white -- if your party is not in the white house, and make as many problems as you can, stop anything good from happening. and if you can't stop it, at least bad-mouth it, and then when life being what it is and all of us being imperfect as we are, when there's a problem, do everything you can to make sure the problem is never fixed. it may work in an election get people all torn up, everybody mad all the time. but it's a dumb way to run a country. >> let's bring in nbc news political reporter kasie hunt, who spent time in ken last week with all of the top candidates. she did a great piece for us, looking at the senate race. your take on the latest developments, including bill clinton being brought in. >> delivering a stem-winder, as usual. clinton was trying to, in that bite you just played, sort of lay out an argument that alison grimes could use as she tries to defend the policies

to 500. we don't have the same touch or nurturing environment. we'll get back and improve the outcomes. >> i want to take the moment to remind the viewers that morehouse targets the nurterring of young african american men. you and i know that there are class lines. asian students led with 81% graduation followed by white 80%, lat eachios 68 and blacks 62% - graduating high school, how do you think the president's initiative will narrow the gap. >> i want to absentuate that a bit. it starts with low reading lels. it's worse far african american males. 86% read below reading levels. it's no surprise that one in three go to prison. there's a cradle to prison pipeline. what we are trying to do is caning that, shift it from a cradle to prison so cradle to power pipeline. morehouse will have a lot to do with that. what the president announced is significant. it's a tie with the philanthropic community. that's where you saw the 200 million injected into this scenario. and that is - there'll be a lot more. also, the federal government will take part in ensuring best practices there are proils
a polarizing media environment, we heard this morning a little bit about how a lot of the coverage around the election wasn't particularly polarized. there are undoubtedly concerns around where the future of this is going to be. a lot of my work is not just on afghanistan but on fragile states in general. fragile states seem to be structured state. we are seeing an increasingly fragmented and fractured media in afghanistan, and the most fractured part of that media are arguably getting quite significant injection of something at the moment. it's the last thing and one level for a state that is trying to redefine itself, chart its own future, its own destiny, its own national identity. it's not necessarily a useful way of going, as if the media becomes ever more fragile and fractured in the way it seems to be going at the moment. >> najib, how solid you think is the support that you expect to see after the elections in terms of governmental support for the concept of a free media? i know there was discussion recently about a new media law. perhaps you could give us a word or two on that an
